A Dog's Approach is Malvern based & offers a supportive service to dogs & their owners seeking a better understanding of & relationship with their companions
Behaviour & Communication
Consultations are one to one. The first takes place in either your home or mine depending upon the behaviours you are seeking help with. Sometimes it is useful to observe a dog in many locations to see how behaviours might differ.
We will cover a lot in this first consult, about you and your dog and included in this package, will be a tailor made, easy to follow training plan as well as continued support for as long as you need me.
The first consultation can be from 1 to 3 hours and costs £30 per hour. Follow up consultations cost £20 per hour, the number and frequency of which will depend upon the nature of the problem and your progress. Again, you will have my continued support and help throughout.
Applied Herbal Choices...A Dog's Nose Knows
Consults take place in my tailormade summerhouse at the bottom of my garden. Sessions can get messy depending upon what a dog might choose to consume, so my set up is geared toward all eventualities. Home visits are an option if necessary and will incur a mileage fee of £0.50 per mile for those living beyond a 3 mile radius of Malvern.
Consults last on average 3 hours and so that I can completely “tune into” your dogs’ conversation/needs, I ask please for clients to be mindful that the session needs to be quiet and free from distractions. There will be points throughout where we can discuss a dogs’ choices/responses too but I’ll initiate when these will be to avoid disrupting the dog.
First consults cost £30 per hour and I will contact you in advance of your appointment, for information on your dogs’ history. I also require veterinary consent so will email over a form that I would need to receive back before your visit.
I will provide you with samples of your dogs preferred choices for you to continue to offer at home and would recommend a second consult two weeks after the first. costing £25 per hour, as would all subsequent consults for the same dog.
